Feather Your Nest: Popular Vote Winner

What an exciting day!! Here we go with the 2nd winner announcement.

We received 73 beautiful entries in the Feather Your Nest competition. Nearly 900 votes were cast in the first round of popular voting, narrowing down the pool to 10 finalists. Over 500 votes were cast in this 2nd round's neck-and-neck race. When the poll closed at midnight last night, the lucky elected project was....

Ironing Board Cover by Stephanie S.

Congratulations Stephanie!

This ironing board cover is made from all recycled and upcycled fabric: the prints are from Lily Pulitzer dresses and pants, the checks are from men's shirts from Gap and Macy's, the dots were a pair of pajama pants, the backing of the cover is an old sheet. Proof that green can be gorgeous! Stephanie's inspiration was this Moda Bake Shop recipe.

Stephanie will be receiving Prize 2:

$100 gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop


Good Morning Birdie and Good Night Owl 5 x 7 prints from Imagine Gnats

We still have one more announcement: the judges' choice! Please come back and visit to meet their 10 finalists and the lucky winner.


  1. Congratulations Stephanie! What a cute and useful project :)

  2. Congratulations to Stephanie, she did a beautiful job on using scraps for her cover. I have always wanted to make one, but got lazy and bought one;)


  3. Congrats! But I can't help wondering why you'd want an ironing board cover with so many seams and bumps?!

  4. ***I understand why you ask that. I had made a couple ironing board covers for the small dorm size ironing boards first and when I ironed on them, they are not bumpy at all and the seams get ironed really, really flat--I guess because you are ironing over the same place over and over again so it is really not an issue:)


  5. Thank you Jenny and Angel for hosting the contest! It was really fun--all the entries were so clever and creative.


  6. Congratulations Stephanie!! What a beautiful project!! GREAT job!!

  7. congratulations Stephanie - very handy project and looks great :)
